The original assault weapon ban was a part of the 1994 Crime Bill signed into law by President Bill Clinton. The law banned certain semi-automatic firearms with two or more specific design features, and also prohibited the manufacture of ammunition magazines that held over ten rounds. The 10-year ban was passed by the 103rd Congress on September 13, 1994, and was signed into law by President Bill Clinton on the same day. The ban only applied to weapons manufactured after the date of the enactment of the ban.
